Best vlogging camera

I was actaully looking for a camera which had a clip on microphone stand on top (not sure if tyhat's the correct name) like on the 70d... thanks anyway!

 

ps: I realised that the 70d was pretty heavy... Guess I'll go to the gym more often then xD

RX1R Mark II, it has the Hot Shoe mount.

Hello everyone,

 

I want to upgrade my vlogging camera to something that actually fits my needs, I was searching for a while n,ow but I couldn't find a camera which has all the features.

 

I want a camera which is able to record in 1080p/60fps, with good low light performance, I also need a microphone input. That's about it really, I looked at the canon 70D (lacks the 60fps) and the g7x (lacks the microphone jack)

 

What camera's would you recommend?

 

thanks in advance!

-Gijs

Last question: does the camera have a microphone input? I can't seem to find any info about that... I'm not really planning to buy an external audio recorder just to hook upo my microphone...

 

EDIT: I also noticed the screen doesn't flip out entirely, so I guess this camera is a no for me... thanks anyway!

Just get a camcorder!  A good Sony handycam has a flip screen, good video AF and servo zoom, gimbal style image stabilization, good internal mics and a decent model will come with internal memory as well as a slot for a memory card for dual storage.

I'm not really looking to get a camcorder because I also want to take some (semi) professional looking photos with it, That's really hard to do with a camcorder ;-) thanks for the advice though

if it hasnt got a flip out display you can buy a cheap on camera monitor, or hook it up to a PC monitor or TV with HDMI to see the output for framing or use autofocus

The OP started two topics with the same title, in this one selected the RX1r, in the other the Panasonic G7.

That makes....no sense

Yep that's why I am wondering, over in the other topic the OP already said the G7 was the camera with the features required. So why continue on here.

I made this new topic since I already selected an answer for the last topic, THe G7 was just about perfect except for the fact that it isn't available anymore in my region... that's why I askedf again. I also realised that you can changed the answer even after you sleected one but that was after I made this topic, I apologise for the strange behaviour!

Casey Neistat uses one for vlogging


PC is Intel Core i5 6400, GIgabyte H170 Gaming 3, Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x4GB 2400Mhz ,Sandisk Ultra Plus 128GB, WD Blue 1TB, NZXT S340, ASUS Geforce GTX 960. Fractal Design Tesla R2 650W. http://au.pcpartpicker.com/p/793XNG. Graphics card choices don't always have to be dictated on performance. If you want the game stream and power consumption of the GTX 970 get that. If you want raw performance of the R9 390 get that. In the end we are all gamers, so what if your buddy gets an extra 5 fps?
